Beef Lo Mein Recipe

I adapted this from a Vegetable Lo Mien Delight recipe.

Cooked angel hair pasta
1 1/2 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. soy sauce
2 T cornstarch
4 T canola oil
2-3 c. chopped celery
2 c. sugar snap peas
chow mien noodles
2 c. cooked tender steak seasoned to taste

The original recipe also calls for fresh mushrooms, bell peppers, sliced onion, bean sprouts, it called for snow peas rather than sugar snap peas, and it didn't call for beef. Sounds great to me, but not much of my crew.

1. Whisk the chicken broth, soy sauce, and cornstarch together (or MAGIC BULLET them, I LOVE my magic bullet)

2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Stir in the celery and cook about 3 min. Add the broth mixture, sugar snap peas, and beef. Continue to cook and stir about 5 minutes, until vegies are tender crisp.

3. Toss with the cooked pasta.

4. Serve over chow mien noodles.

Anyone else have a new (or old) recipe to share?
